Hi, I'm Katy

My story reflects the challenges many supporting spouses face. When my husband and I moved to Dubai for his career, I felt the impact on my mental health and a keen sense of loss within myself. Leaving my family, friends, career and home behind was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.


The most challenging part? My husband seemed to flourish. He was meeting people and making new friends through his work, while I stayed at home. Alone. 

I noticed a growing resentment towards my husband that I had never experienced before and this prompted the need for change. I took deliberate steps - engaging in new activities, crafting a supportive home environment, cultivating mindfulness and finding new ways to make friends. Today, I embrace life in Dubai with gratitude, a network of friends, fulfilling hobbies and my own ambitions. 

About Me

My whole career has been dedicated towards helping people achieve their potential and get the most out of life. Having taught children gymnastics from an early age, I went on to become an occupational therapist for the NHS. Making a difference to people’s lives was incredibly fulfilling.  Now, having relocated abroad, I have moved on to become a certified coach and create the Supporting Spouses program. I’ve walked in your shoes and I know how hard it can be adjusting to a new life in an unfamiliar place. I have the compassion and the skills to help set you on your own path of discovery and realignment. If you're an expat woman seeking empathy, positive change and a renewed sense of self, you've come to the right place. Let's embark on this transformative adventure together.
